Did you know that probiotic bacteria are capable of helping you detoxify the most noxious chemicals known to humankind? For decades health practitioners have been recommending gut cleanses to enhance their patient's health and well being. Most diseases begin in the gut or as a lack of poor gut health. When done right with the aid of probiotics, a gut detox is an essential step towards optimal health.

DO YOU NEED A DETOX?
Gut cleansing isn’t just for those with tummy issues. If you suffer from the following, it may be time for you to detox.
Constipation and diarrhea
There are common mechanisms at play with these symptoms - inflammation, poor nutrient absorption and cell dysfunction, all of which are directly influenced by the function and health of your gut.
If you are struggling to lose weight we also recommend a detox. The latest research suggests that an unbalanced and unhealthy gut microbiome, caused by a poor diet and overuse of antibiotics, produces toxins called lipopolysaccharides (LPS), triggering inflammation and insulin resistance, which then promotes weight gain. We often we focus on kilojoules for weight loss, but the truth is, without a healthy gut, weight loss can be a battle.
“I personally think that probiotics may be very helpful in the future as a way of dealing with constipation and other health problems,” - Dr. Allen Walker, Division of Nutrition at Harvard Medical School
THE BEST FOODS FOR YOUR GUT

Fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kefir, coconut kefir yogurt, kombucha, kimchi (these foods promote a healthy balance of good bacteria in the gut)
Turmeric powder (this has great anti-inflammatory properties)Fresh ginger (to aid in digestion and nausea)
Cabbage, kale, broccoli and other brassica vegetables (these enhance detoxification and are a good source of fibre)
